Document Description
The Project proposes to install a fourth lead track extending the existing A Yard lead track to two existing Ono Storage Sidings. A continuous lead track would be created, closing the existing gap between the Ono Storage Sidings and improving the flow of trains in and out of the A Yard. The Project does not propose to increase rail line operations; instead it would improve the A Yard’s operational efficiency by improving the A Yard’s ability to assemble and hold outbound trains, as well as move around railroad cars without obstructing mainline movements, reducing train congestion along the existing lead tracks and reducing train idling by approximately 43 percent. The approximately 41-acre Project site consists of the existing BNSF corridor and adjacent properties where ground disturbances (including temporary construction staging) and/or property acquisitions would occur. The proposed fourth lead track would be constructed within/along approximately 4.3 miles of the existing BNSF corridor generally from BNSF corridor generally from the BNSF overpass at State Street/University Parkway on the north to the existing SBD Intermodal. To accommodate the proposed improvements, the Project would require circulation and roadway improvements/modifications to City roadways
